Posted on 2009-02-23

I am trying to print some items to pdf using <cfdocument> in ColdFusion 8.  However when I select a certain number of these items (via checkboxes) it errors out.  The limit seems to be around 50 or so.  So if I select 49 i'm fine.  Is there a setting that needs to be increased to fix this problem?

    probably increasing the request timeout or similar.

    What is the error exactly.

    Turned out to be a limit on the size of the submitted url string.  I was using uuids to identify.  Once you get 100 or so uuids in a comma delimited string it's pretty big.
